Jess A BS: Bread maker problems (60* d) RE: BS: Bread maker problems 24 Feb 09

Well, I've now made a loaf with my modified recipe as per Stilly River Sage's suggestions plus looking at the other recipes people have posted or linked to in this thread, and am pleased to report that they helped a lot! I also discovered that my other half didn't really like the bread I was making because it tasted too sweet, so I reduced the amount of sugar a lot and also reduced the salt a bit to compensate.

I'm going to experiment a bit more (I think I may use a bit more yeast and will add some vitamin C too) to see if I can get it to be a bit more springy, but when I've come up with a 'final' recipe I'll post it here in case it is ever any use to other people.

thank you! I knew I needed to try varying the amounts of ingredients but felt I had too many variables and not enough prior experience of breadmaking to know what to change first... your collective advice has made a big difference!
